Lokonga speaks on his best role

Despite only being announced on Monday, Lokonga has already been pictured in training with Arsenal:

He has also already conducted an interview as an Arsenal player. During the interview, the 21-year-old was quizzed on whether he sees himself as an attacking-playmaker or a box-to-box midfielder.

And whilst he did state that he can play as both, Lokonga went on to state that people say his best position is as a six:

“I can play both. 

“I can play both, I can play as a six and I can play like a box to box, but yeah, people say that I’m better in the six position.”
